Getting your make up done by a professional make up artist is a bit of a luxury and is usually reserved for those special occasions, like a debs, a wedding or a special night out.
Zoe Williams is a senior make-up artist with Giorgio Armani, who was in Dublin recently making up the faces of the few lucky people who had booked a slot with her in Brown Thomas.
I was one of those lucky few and Williams was a joy to spend an hour with. Originally from Dun Laoghaire, she has lived in Manchester for the last 15 years, working for Armani and doing what she does best – applying make-up.
She has worked on some of the big fashion shows including London Fashion Week and name drops Lily Cole as one of the famous faces she has applied rouge to.
After giving my face the once over she chose a few key looks for autumn/winter 15 and got to work. She went outside my comfort zone in a few areas, especially when it came to eyes and lips. The end result was a nice change, using burnt oranges and deep purples. Very Goth!
She started off with some light master primer before moving on to Luminous silk and Maestro foundation mixed. Maestro Fusion Blush in number 90 was then applied and this is a winner product, a bronzer in liquid that does the exact same job as a powder, only better.
Williams recommended one of Armani’s best selling products for me, the Eye and Brown Maestro which can be used almost anywhere on the face. It can even be applied to the odd grey hair and stays in place until you shampoo again! This gave me a dramatic brow, one of the biggest game changes in make up terms in recent years.
For the eye socket she went for a relatively new product, Eyes to Kill Intense in 13 and 15 which created a dramatic effect. A touch of lip blush and mascara and I was ready to go.
All products used by Williams are stocked in BT’s.
